I usually watch on the Fetch box and cannot confirm or deny this applies there, but i have just logged into Optus Sport Online to watch a minimatch, and i was given 2 x 30 sec ads which are not skip-able (even with an adblocker). Appears they have been incorporated into the minimatch video itself.
So fair enough with a free service like YouTube, but what now Optus expects me to pay a subscription each month and sit through Claratyne, Industry SuperFund, and any other turd they are getting paid to peddle?
Optus get rid of this garbage.
The experience is waning for me, and at some point I'll end up deciding to stream illegally like everyone else. I feel it coming.
P.S. I'm still watching the local aussie crew pre-early match on Saturdays, when we have a perfectly better team available to watch direct from the UK studio... as per last season. You are NOT improving things optus.
